The Indianapolis Colts today released their Wednesday injury report for Week 8 of the NFL season ahead of their Sunday game. The Colts only did a walkthrough therefore the practice report is only an estimation of each players participation is there was a practice.

Wide receiver TY Hilton would have missed practice today with a quad injury. Hilton played his first game of the season two weeks ago against the Texans but ended up getting injured in the process. Hilton had a chance to play against the 49ers but ultimately wasn’t fit enough to play. Hilton will be one to monitor this week.
Cornerback Bopete Keyes would have missed practice today with a hamstring injury. Keyes is a key back up at corner for the Colts who are already banged up at the position. The Colts may need to bring in another corner if Keyes can’t go Sunday.
Cornerback Xavier Rhodes would have missed practice with a calf injury. Rhodes was QUESTIONABLE to play against the 49ers and nearly didn’t after pulling up in warm ups. The Colts need Rhodes massively going forward to help shore up the secondary.
Running back Nyheim Hines would have been limited at practice with a rib injury. Hines is a key part of the offense not only in the running game but also in the passing attack. Hopefully he can practice fully this week and play on Sunday.
Right tackle Braden Smith would have been limited at practice today with thumb and foot injuries. Smith has been out since Week 1 when he was injured during the game. Hopefully this is the week Smith returns and slots back into his right tackle position.
Running back Jonathan Taylor would have been limited with a rib injury today at practice. Taylor is the heart beat of the Colts offense and one of the main reasons why the Colts have 3 wins on the year.
Defensive end Kemoko Turay would have been limited with a groin injury today. Turay has missed a handful of games this year with different injuries. It looks like Turay has a shot to return to action this weekend and it will be badly needed seeing as the Colts pass rush is struggling mightily.
Cornerback Rock Ya-Sin would have been limited today at practice with an ankle injury. Ya-Sin has missed the last two games with an ankle injury and has been missed massively. If Keyes and Rhodes can’t play then Ya-Sin will be even more important. Hopefully he can return to action this week.
Running back Jordan Wilkins would have been a full participant today. Wilkins has been out the past few weeks with a non-football illness. Looks like Wilkins could return to action this week.
